Pride's Prejudice

Beth Pride really can’t stand William Darcy: he snubbed her at the Hartford College Children’s Benefit Auction; he has an infuriating propensity for pushing her buttons; his actions are frequently at odds with his words; and even his melting chocolate eyes and impressive physique don’t quite make up for his deficient personality.

Beth’s plan to avoid William backfires when

So, I thought this was a cute, modern retelling of Pride & Prejudice. While it stuck pretty closely to the original, there were enough changes to make it different. I liked Beth, for the most part. She seems to have her head on straight and was easy to relate to. I also liked William; I guess there is no surprise how their relationship started and progresses. There are some nice moments between Beth and William and I thought they had good chemistry together. There is definitely more kiss

Just re-read this book, and I love it even more! My favorite scene is the carrot scene. When you get there, you will know why.

This book was such a fun read. I loved this modern take of Pride and Prejudiced. It has wonderfully steamy (but clean) moments that leave you breathless. Misty's writing style is very descriptive but it does such an excellent job at getting you right into the scene. Every little movement or touch, every snarky little comment that the main characters exchanged with each ot
3 1/2 -

Liked the retake on P&P - followed along nicely without copying. Liked William's brooding, protective nature. Thought all the characters were great actually. What I could have done without was all the borderline innuendos and lustful thoughts.

Moral Note: no language, talk of drugged date rape, which leads to pregnancy. Drugged girls, drinking/drunks, passionate kisses, mild talk sex (waiting), innuendos like (the need to take a cold shower, getting de-aroused, wanting to have my way

This book is a wonderful modern day version of Pride and Prejudice with its characters, wit, chemistry and charm. I just finished reading this book and my rating is TEN STARS OUT OF TEN STARS! I can't begin to describe how much I enjoyed it! This is a wonderful modern day version of Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen by recreating the same wit, intelligence, chemistry, sharpness and the too quick to judge traits in Elizabeth Bennett and Darcy into the two main characters in this modern novel.

Oh how I loved this book. I am so excited to have a book I finally want to neglect my 5 kids for. Reading time is pretty scarce around here, so for me to find a book that is worth my time is rare! I loved everything about this book from start to finish. It was such a fun read. I found myself invested in the characters right away, wanting them to be happy and so see them together. I loved looking for and spotting the parallels to Austen. The imagery was great, the story captivating, and I could f ...more

This was a fun modern Pride and Prejudice Variation. I enjoyed it thoroughly. No gross scenes or anything. I couldn't put it down either. Go read it.

I along with every female seem to have a connection to Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice. There is something about falling for the wonderful Mr. Darcy that strikes a cord in most of us. I think for me it's the basis of to all wonderful love stories. Cinderella. Every women wants to find that "prince charming" and live happily ever after. I know I did and I am grateful that is how my life turned out. :)

As for this book, I liked the fact that it followed certain parts of Pride and Prejudice and al

Totally loved this modernized,yet clean, version of the Classic favorite
I was a little leery of reading a "modernized" version of the Jane Austen classic-Pride & Prejudice which I love, because so often in the case of remakes of "classic" films that means taking the innocence of the era completely out, and instead filling the remake with the profanity and sexual immorality so common in today's society and giving it a 'R' rating!

I was thrilled to find

A fun contemporary re-telling of Jane Austen's masterpiece. Half the fun of reading this is picking out which modern characters are based on Ms. Austen's originals. Ms. Pulsipher makes it easy in most cases. It's also satisfying to recognize many of the original plot points in their new incarnations, not necessarily an easy task when the setting is a Wyoming college town.

I appreciated the fact that Ms. Pulsipher stayed true to the spirit of Pride and Prejudice in terms of just how far the romanc

Modern take on Pride and Prejudice with no Lady Catherine in this version. Beth is our Elizabeth and Darcy's is arrogant when he first meets Beth as a children's charity event. He quickly realizes he is attracted to Beth and is in her company a lot as his best friend is dating Beth's best friend and roommate (our modern Jane). The difference in wealth is noted and Beth's quick wit and hatred of Darcy are put to the test when Darcy does a few nice things to Beth's surprise. Beth realizes her true ...more

Pride and Prejudice is one of my favorite novels and this was a good modern day retelling of the story. I loved that the book goes back and forth between Beth and Williams point of views it was fun to be able to read things from Darcy's perspective. All of the major plot points from Pride and Prejudice are covered in this and told with a bit of a twist to them. This was a sweet story that I thoroughly enjoyed.

The storyline flows from the beloved Austen classic, housed in a modern setting. All the romance and heart (complete with a hunky Mr. Darcy) plus snarky asides, a hometown feel, and a cast of very memorable characters. Read it, you won't regret it.

I absolutely loved this book. It's a more modern adaptation to Jane Austin's Pride and Prejudice and that made it so great. I am a fan of Pride and Prejudice and I love the movie ( in this case I think that the movie was better than the book). Anyway, if you have or have not read the book I suggest you watch the movie.I loved how stubborn Beth was throughout the book and that her last name was Pride. All of the character's in the book were exactly like how the characters in Pride and Prejudice ...more

I have a goofy smile plastered on my face after reading this sweet clean romance! A great read for 16 plus young adults and adults as well. You don't need to have read Pride and Prejudice to love and understand the fun play between the two main characters, but if you love Jane Austen you will enjoy the modern twist she uses for the storyline. I love Misty Dawn Pulsipher's descriptive writing style and her sense of humor. This was the perfect book to lose myself in. I'm so glad I bought it and wi ...more

Fans of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice will enjoy this modernization of the story. It stays true to the themes of the original with likeable characters and some fun descriptions. It's a fast, easy read and takes no time to get into the rhythm and pacing of the book.

I loved how each character related to the ones we already love, and hate, in Pride and Prejudice. This book also had unexpected moments that made me think "I didn't see that coming." It kept me interested and I didn't want it to end.

It has been awhile since I've read a book that I enjoyed so much. And it was refreshing to find a book with characters with morals. I am a Jane Austen fan so this book caught my eye. I am so glad I picked up this book.
This is a good story, just a little too borderline clean for my tastes. And I didn't understand why the underwear scenes were necessary. But I think the author has talent at storytelling.

I really liked this modern take on Jane Austen's classic. It was very fresh and maintained the heart, soul and spirit of the original. I loved the sparks between Beth and William!

4.5 stars

I bought this book due to the recommendation in one of the other reviews, as the author of that review is my friend (and author) Joy Dawn King. The fact that she not only gave it 5 stars but also stated that she has read it over and over again sold me.

This is a modern day variation on Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice. I found it very clever that she used that title to translate into her own title and then also has a heroine named Beth Pride! Ms. Pulsipher used many names, places and ev

Beth Pride despises William Darcy after he snubs her at a charity auction. Unfortunately, Beth's best friend, Jenna, and Williams's best friend, Les, fall in love and Beth and William are forced to spend time with each other. There are constant disagreements and misunderstandings between them, but over time they start to question their initial opinions of each other.

This is a cute and fluffy re-write of Pride and Prejudice set mostly in present day Wyoming. The characters were developed well and

As I am sure you could infer from the synopsis, Pride’s Prejudice by Misty Dawn Pulsipher is a modern day adaptation of Jane Austen’s Pride & Prejudice. There are several adaptations and Austen inspired works, but quite frankly I’ll probably never get enough. If it involves Jane Austen, chances are I am going to love it – and love it I did.

Beth and William are wonderfully entertaining characters, and personality wise they are very true to Elizabeth Bennet and Fitzwilliam Darcy. The verbal s

This started out as a solid 3 star but got progressively better as it went. By the end, there had even been some good laughs & emotional moments & I enjoyed her twist on the original. I liked that she didn't copy Austen's work or follow it closely. Her ideas were original and loosely based on Austen's work. I really liked Darcy. He's pretty smitten with Beth from the first, but makes a lot of mistakes with her. Beth is pretty hard on him though, and clueless as to how he really feels abo ...more

I heard about this as a free book on my Kindle from a friend last week. Being a person who appreciate's Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, I hoped this would be worth my time. It is a modern version of Pride and Prejudice. The author updates some of the trials from the original story, but the main tenents are still included in this one. I enjoyed the main characters, and the updated storyline. It does have some romantic themes, but stays true to the original and does not over-do anything.

I love different versions of Pride & Prejudice and was not disappointed with this modern retelling! I was also interested in the author, she & I attended the same college & I currently live in the same town as this college. So while I loved the familiar story & characters, I loved the new location and discovering a new author.
This was a passionate story, but clean, which I love. I also enjoyed the sections from Darcy's POV. So fun to hear from him!

You started out so well, book! What happened ? The beginning was full of funny banters and fizzling sexual tension and then, the worst hit.

It veered from cute P&P modern retelling (and really, it was so good at first I was giggling like a 12-year-old with a crush) to abominable and cliché EFFING New Adult!!

Oh boy, no. Just no.

You cannot do that to my dear Lizzie and pompous Darcy. The latter is supposed to be a bit arrogant and you know, cold. Kinda. It takes a lot of time for him to under

Pride’s Prejudice is debuting author, Misty Dawn Pulsipher’s, mature, contemporary treatment of Miss Jane Austen’s beloved coming of age novel about class distinctions and false assumptions. While many authors are attempting Austen adaptations, particularly of Pride and Prejudice, Ms. Pulsipher has a rich writing style and the honest courage worthy of such an effort.

College coed, Beth Pride, and her roommate Jenna, meet two wealthy businessmen at a college charity auction. Lighthearted Les Bradf
